The other day we got a chance to check out the performance of the new NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB in SLI with the help of a reference card and the EVGA SuperClocked version. Like most high-end NVIDIA setups, we found ourselves impressed with what the company offered.
As always, once we've finished with the stock testing, we head on over to the overclocking side of things to see just how much performance we can get out of the model. The importance of overclocking on the new GTX 780 3GB, though, is even more serious than previous high-end models.
The main reason we say that is because unlike previous new single high-end GPU models, NVIDIA currently have a model that is faster in the $999 GTX TITAN. What we discovered, though, when testing the reference GTX 780 3GB from NVIDIA was that performance between these two models was quite similar at times. What looked even better, though, was when we overclocked the GTX 780. It was then we saw just how close we could get the two cards performing to each other. Something that's important considering the $350 price difference in favor of the GTX 780.
Today we test overclocking when it comes to SLI and find out just how much performance we can get out of this $1300 setup.
